The Geography of Sport (& Politics)
I have carried out some in depth analysis on the geography of sport and come to the conclusion that if you are born in a hot country then you should probably forget about a career in ice hockey.
You can carry out your own analysis by studying these maps showing the birthplaces of professional players in the National Hockey League, in Major League Baseball and in the National Basketball Association.
The 2012-13 NHL Player Map and the 2013 MLB Player Map show the birthplaces of professional players in the ice hockey and baseball leagues. The All NBA Birthplaces Map shows the birthplaces of all professional players in the men's professional basketball league.
Oh - and if you want to get yourself elected president make sure you are born in the Northeast United States.
